    Remember when he talked about that?
    I think he could do it but Id rather he stay and defend, now.
    Maybe that was his way of threatening the UFC into giving him the title fight. But I think he wouldve gotten it anyway

    When doing the fight introductions, the camera would just pan over to a literal skeleton of Khabib.

    Are u crazy
    His father said that they planned to defend the LW belt once or twice than go up to 170lbs because Khabib got bigger
    He even said that he went up to 90kg at one stage which is close to 200lbs

    He would need to sell half of his organs to make 145

    Khabib is a huge LW, moving up to WW is a real possibility for him but going down in weight is not only in the realm of impossible, it serves no purpose either.

    The only way Khabib ever makes featherweight is by starting his eight cut directly after Ramadan

    He can definitely make 145 with the right approach(which will result in him losing muscle mass) without too much trouble. He could try to cut the weight via dehydration too but that'd be unreliable and would cause big trouble. Either way, I wouldn't advise Khabib to do either. Stay at LW where you're comfortable with cutting and how your body feels or bulk up and move to WW. Moving down makes no sense for someone that's considered big for his weight class, especially now that he's soon entering his thirties.

    Ideally I want him to stay with LW and answer the few questions that are left in the division.

    Yea no. Total bullshit. There is no way he is lean at 90. Maybe with like 18% body fat.
